Do detox diets help you lose weight?


Claims of detox diets

Many of these diets claim to help people flush out the colon, which helps the body to eradicate toxins and parasites, as well as lose some weight.

Example of detox diet

An example of a detox diet is the Lemonade or Master Cleanse Diet. This diet involves using laxatives for approximately a two week period, as well as consuming a mixture of lemon juice, maple syrup, cayenne pepper and water throughout the day.

Do detox diets work?

According to experts, there is no hard-core evidence that this type of detox diet actually 'cleanses' your insides. Angela Lemond, spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics in Plano, Texas, says that, "Our bodies have an amazing ability to cleanse themselves. If you want a good cleanse, make a goal of eating nine servings of fruit and vegetables a day, and you'll get your cleanse."

Seek medical assistance

If you are overweight or obese, or think that you may need to shed some kilograms, chat to your doctor about following a healthy weight loss plan. Never adopt any diet blindly, as you could be doing your body and health more harm than good.
